Rocket League for Switch has Super Mario and Metroid-themed Battle-Cars

Rocket League Switch Has Nintendo Cars!

The first of these new Battle-Cars are named Mario NSR and Luigi NSR (no prizes for guessing who they are named after).

Rocket League on Switch will have crossplay with the Xbox One and Steam versions and will launch later this year.

Furthermore this new edition of Rocket League will feature The "Mario" and "Luigi" Toppers on any vehicle, the "Super Star" Rocket Boost for the Mario and Luigi cars and the "Wave Beam" Rocket Boost for the "Samus" Gunship'. The announcement was pretty vague, simply promising the "soccer with cars" game would arrive on Nintendo's new system, but the possibilities were obvious. The two cars are identical except for the color, and the one you get will depend on which team you're on.

The Super Mario and Metroid cars won't be available until the Holiday season, but it's great to see Nintendo working with a third-party developer to bring cool content to an already great game. Players will be hoping that RNG is on their side, however, as item unlocks in Rocket League are entirely random.

The supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle cars will have Mario, Luigi and Metroid themes available on Switch in addition to Mario and Luigi hats for existing vehicles. The Gunship auto will come with a Wave Beam specialized boost.

Seriously, pick up Rocket League.
